Puligny Montrachet AC 2017

Domaine Faiveley

Domaine Faiveley combines the principles of modern winemaking methods with the time honored traditions that have been practiced for centuries within their 19th century cellars. Each terroir and each vintage, benefits from special attention which makes the cuvées unique. Each bottle therefore becomes the faithful reflection of its terroir.

Terroir: Faiveley sources their village level Puligny Montrachet from many parcels throughout the appellation. Their goal is to source from varying terroirs to produce the most consistent and well structured wine.

Vinification: Grapes are harvest by hand and sorted upon arrival at the domaine. Following primary fermentation the young wine is aged for 14-16 months in a combination of 2/3 new and 1/3 used oak barrels.

Additional Information

The nose is very pleasant and charms through its both subtle and entrancing character. White flower scents mix with delicate aromas of vanilla and fresh hazelnut. After a bold attack on the palate, the charm continues and the wine has greedy tastes. This sensation of fatness, together with its acidity, make it a delicate and balanced wine.

    "(from 40-year-old vines in Les Boudrières; mostly from estate fruit): Bright light yellow. Crushed rock and menthol on the lively nose, with emerging notes of pineapple and minerals. Then precise on the palate for village wine, displaying very good mineral and floral lift to the pineapple and nectarine fruit flavors. Weber told me that the grape bunches here were perfect in 2017."
    Grade: 88-90 points
